The Crown Verity British BBQ Battle 2014

The search is on for this year’s British BBQ Battle Champion, so get your creative juices flowing…

Devise and submit a winning 3-course BBQ menu that takes a spin on British favourites and you could be walking away with a £3,000 Crown Verity BBQ plus £1,000’s worth of other prizes and the title of ‘Crown Verity British BBQ Champion’!
But hurry, the deadline for entries is Friday 2nd May 2014.
Chefs from all walks of the foodservice industry are invited to enter. All you need to do is submit a brief description of your starter, main course and dessert that can all be prepared on a BBQ.


You must use at least one Lion sauce in one of your courses. There’s a choice of Lion BBQ and hot sauces, salsas and chutneys, mustards, and mayonnaise and dressings for the range – so get as creative, unique and inspirational as you like!

Entries will be shortlisted by the President of the British BBQ Association and Britain’s Best BBQer at the World BBQ Championships, Ben Bartlett.

The eight shortlisted chefs will be invited to compete for the title at a live BBQ cook-off final on 18th June at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, where they will have to create their 3-courses within a 1 hour time frame. On the day, Ben Bartlett and his co-judges will be scoring the chefs not only on the taste and appearance of their final dishes, but for BBQ cooking techniques too. So the heat will be on!

For the live final, Crown Verity BBQs, powered by Calor LPGenius gas (ideal for precision barbecuing) will be provided for each finalist to cook on and they will also receive samples of their selected Lion sauces in advance of the final.
All eight finalists will be rewarded with a Sharp LED TV, a Simply Stainless Professional Chef’s table and exclusive British BBQ Battle chef’s whites. The winner will also walk away with a top of the range Crown Verity BBQ and accessories pack. All prizes, worth an estimated £11,000 are kindly provided by leading foodservice equipment supplier RH Hall, the exclusive distributor in the UK for Crown Verity, Sharp and Simply Stainless.
